I am a linden wood cup. I was carved out of a single piece of wood, so my grain is continuous and lovely. Not to brag too too much. I’m the perfect serving for a person and you will love touching my curves.
There were two things that I intimately remember when I first came in contact with the cups… 1) they are incredibly lightweight with beautiful tapered walls that come to a thing edge, 2) they are incredible addictive to touch and hold in your hands. The cups fit within your fingers so naturally and effortlessly that they feel ‘right’.
"Cara" is a series of egg-shaped tablewares making the most of the warmth of wood as a material and Japanese thin-wood-curving techniques. The curvatures of the pieces are meant to mimic the egg so as to fit gently within your hands.
